Guru of Gopis- Lalita Sakhi!!
Srimati Lalita Devi is the foremost among the eight most confidential Sakhis of Srimati Radha Rani. Lalita Devi was born in Karehla village but her father brought her to Uccagaon the native place of Shri Radha Rani. She is older than Radharani.
Radha is revered by Hindus as she was very dear to Lord Krishna. Her friend Lalita Devi was the boss of asta- sakhis or she is considered the head of all gopis who magnificently instigates the pastimes of the Divine Couple. Lalita Devi was more clever than Krishna and often debate with him was known to be strict and mature yet playful. Lalita Devi was an expert in magic tricks and juggling.
Her close confidante Lalita Sakhi is therefore worshipped too, as Lord Krishna accorded her the respect due for being the close confidante of Radha Rani.
The eight Gopis or sakhis are: Lalita, Visakha, Chitralekha, Champakalata, Tungavidya, Indulekha, Rangadevi, and Sudevi.
Lalita Saptami falls on the Seventh Day of the Shukla (Waxing fortnight) Paksha, in Bhadrapad month and is held in honour to worship Lalita Devi along with Radharani and Lord Krishna on this day.
